Proud to help
"I have been hairdressing for over 30 years and during this time I have
customised many wigs. Initially this was for glamorous photo shots or
sometimes for clients who wanted to completely change their look. However,
during the past few years, more and more women who have just been diagnosed
with cancer have contacted me asking if I can customise a wig for them
ready for when their hair falls out during or after chemotherapy.
This made me realise that I can use my experience and expertise to advise
and help women at this particularly difficult time of their lives. Having
had such a successful and happy career in hairdressing I am proud to be
able to give something back."

Non-medical hair loss affects most of us throughout periods of our lives,
genetics; stress; lifestyle and pregnancy are just some examples.
There are many tools available to consumers to help with this, but it
is important to remember to lead a healthy lifestyle: A wholesome diet,
rich in silica, calcium and iron, will help reduce or prevent hair loss.
Hair is comprised mostly of protein. Use hair products that are rich in
proteins as a valuable resource for combating hair loss.
